Dutch company designs biodegradable clothing hangers

October 12, 2020 |

In the Netherlands, a company has launched a biodegradable clothing hanger made from renewable materials such as potato starch, corn, beetroot, coffee grounds and grass.

Hooks Creative says the hanger took two years to develop and local production was prioritized. “We can now put an end to the gigantic CO2 emissions by sea freight from Asia,” says Arjan Kaan, CEO of Hooks Creative. “Because the clothes hangers can be produced worldwide at any desired location, we can cut out pollution by transport emissions. The hanger is therefore CO2 neutral during the production process, transport, and in its disposal.”

Hooks Creative’s hangers will also compost completely if it ends up in the environment or landfill.

“All parts of the clothes hanger have a sustainable origin, so that it can be completely composted or recycled at the end of its life,” adds Kaan. “We herald a whole new era with the introduction of the compostable clothes hanger. Finally we can help make the fashion industry constructively sustainable.”
